Lava Monastery

Lava Monastery, also known as Ratnarishi Bihar Buddhist Gumpa, is situated at Lava in Darjeeling District of West Bengal. This monastery was established by Karma Lodro Chokyi Senge, the third Kongtrul Rimpoche.

Situated beside the large Neora Reservoir Lake, this religious residence is erected using brick and concrete. Due to the increase in the number of devotees and monks over the years, the facilities in Lava monastery were expanded. Today, the fourth Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche studies and trains here.
